Why now?

It’s certainly not the best birding season; the migrant waves have passed through, and the dawn chorus is down to soloists (not that I was awake for it!). Well, the birds here now are here to stay, easier to see in their nesting areas, so I can get a slow start on instinctive immediate recognition of the usual suspects. That way, unusual birds will stand out.

I’ll have all those long slow winter weeks with the same dozen birds to study up for the spring deluge. If I work hard on songs, I’ll be more confident doing by-ear ID.

My big weight-loss reward is going to be an new pair of binocs. That’ll take some saving up for.

The local birding community is very active. I want to work my way into participating on trips.
